Hey guys! Do you remember Anatolia Story? This is another historical masterpiece by the talented Chie Shinohara. But it is only better, because it is much more realistic and breathtaking. Enjoy! (Summary see below)

Yume no Shizuku, Ougon no Torikago volume 1 chapter 1
(Also called: Drops of Dreams, The Golden Birdcage)


Beginning of 16th century – Alexandra was captured by slave traders from Ukraine during one of their many raids. When the traders arrived in Greece to sell the female slaves, a young handsome man named Mateus bought her and promised to give her true freedom. He hired countless teachers, scholars, and palace ladies to train her into the most perfect woman of her time. Mateus’s kindness has caused Alexandra to deeply fall in love with him, and she secretly wishes to be his concubine. But cruel fate! Mateus has already promised her to his best friend… Suleiman the Great, Emperor of the Ottoman Empire! Mateus promised Alexandra of true freedom, but where is freedom when she is in another man’s harem and can only look at the one she loves from afar? Not willing to endure agony, Alexandra promises herself that one day, she will free both of them from their bird cages… but Mateus is the Grand Vizier, power only second to the Emperor himself. So Alexandra must become the most influential concubine in order to have any hope… which also means, bearing Suleiman’s son. However, Suleiman already has a son by another concubine, and this woman is determined to keep her son as the only prince.

Hence begins the story of a slave to an empress of the greatest empire of all time – Alexandra , the woman who would one day be known as Roxelana, Empress of the Ottoman Empire.

“Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains. Those who think themselves the masters of others are indeed greater slaves than they.” — Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 18th century philosopher from Geneva

Why is a scanlation group talking about The Social Contract from your philosophy or history classes? Stay tuned. Our upcoming release is about the idea of freedom. What is freedom? What is equality? Can they coexist or are they doomed to cancel out each other? Does the presence of one cause the absence of the other? Well, what do you think? Please comment!
